On Thursday, October 23 at 1:00PM "On the Romani Trail" will go to Russia to pay "A Tribute to Alesha Dimitrievich", the legendary Gypsy folk singer who spent his life traveling around the world performing old Romani songs with his family of singers, musicians and dancers. Starting out as a dancer, circus acrobat and guitarist, Alesha later turned to singing with guitar and accompanyment.
On David Burrough's show on Thursday the 23rd he'll play songs from Alesha Dimitrievich's repertoire, performed by the Romani singers and musicians Nikolai Erdenko, Lili Tzvetkova, Pascal de Loutchak, Lilia Roos-Dalskaia, Lilya Limanskaya, Roby Lakatos, and others. He'll also play some recordings of Alesha Dimitrievich himself. Please tune in for the fun and excitement.
